My husband is getting ready to deploy for a "Sea Tour" with the Marines for at least 6mn with not much time on land. He leaves in January and we have a daughter who will be 3mns in a couple of days. She is already quite attached to her daddy and loves spending time with him when he gets home from work and when he "makes" time for her. Even just seeing him makes her smile. I'm just curious though how to prepare her and what to do when he leaves. How do I make the transition between him leaving and coming back easy for her? I'm not to concerned about myself, I have done the deployment with him once before, I know I can get through this. But now with a baby in the mix I'm at a loss as what to do. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.
